Hi friends! Holly here from Life in the Lofthouse! Today I'm bringing you one of my favorite recipes to make at Easter: Easy Orange Rolls! These Orange Rolls are seriously delectable. I don't know if it's the tender dough, or the delicious orange, sweet and buttery topping, these rolls are always a hit.
With the help of pre-made dough, these orange rolls are really a cinch to make. With my family, I usually have to double the recipe (which is also easy to do) because no one can ever eat just one. They're that good! :)
12 frozen Rhodes dinner rolls
1/3 cup melted butter
zest of 1 orange
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons orange juice
2 Tablespoons milk
Place frozen rolls in a greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Cover with greased plastic wrap and let thaw according to package directions. (This usually takes 4 to 5 hours depending on the temperature in your kitchen. You can even thaw them in the refrigerator overnight!)
Preheat oven to 350° F. Pour melted butter evenly over the tops of thawed rolls.
In a small bowl, mix together the orange zest and sugar.
Pour sugar mixture evenly over the buttery tops of rolls
Bake, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes before glazing. While rolls are baking, whisk together all the glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Pour glaze all over rolls. Serve warm!
Yields: 12 rolls
